Following on from the successful loan spell of James Talbot earlier in the season, we are delighted to announce the arrival of Kieran Graham who has joined the club on loan to the end of the season from Sunderland AFC.

Kieran is part of the Modern Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence Scheme at the Academy.

Since joining Sunderland in 2014 he has made a number of appearances for the under 18’s.

Predominantly a right winger he is equally comfortable playing off the frontman where his pace, control and energy have given opposition defences cause for concern.
